THE TRUTH - JUSTICE - LOVE
Lay community in many parishes, diocese and elsewhere in the country have been efforts and tingle circulating written comments to the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Vietnam draft edit change the 1992 Constitution. The deep concern across the board of lay people today about the current situation of the country, the fate and survival of the nation is expressed through the suggestions and proposals to modify and build a State Constitution authentic and true today is a great encouragement and lit up the flame of hope in the hearts of the people even though faced with the crooked games, deceit, democratic artificial forms of the leaders of the Vietnamese Communist Party and government.
Although there is no true willingness to modify, improve or build a new Constitution to meet all the legitimate aspirations of the people, meet the criteria related to the field of human rights, as well as meeting the benefit of the nation, but through consultation campaign contributions among the people to shape a new constitution to meet and cope with the bad situation of the country of Vietnam today , the leader of the Vietnamese Communist Party and the State have inadvertently fueled the fire desire democracy for so long in the hearts of the Vietnamese people in all parts of the country. Especially for with fellow parishioners Vietnam before the heroic pioneer full of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Vietnam in the proposed draft amendments to the constitution the State of Vietnam.
Circulating the petition draft amendment of the 1992 constitution of the Episcopal Conference of Vietnam meant that help build a complete new constitution in which all the rights, responsibilities and obligations of the people, of government and leadership of the country are presented in a clear, transparent way and is consistent with the criteria to improve the bad condition of the country of Vietnam today. Vietnamese Catholics let a pioneer in all areas to comply with the motto of the Catholic Church in Vietnam is the "good life beautiful religion." We hope that not only the Diocese Kon Tum, Diocese of Vinh, and the parish has a sense of responsibility to society, to the country as what Tan Mai parish, the Diocese of Xuan Loc, Dong Nai have been doing today now that all parishes and dioceses nationwide will jointly help of variable "democratic dreams" great and only hope of the people of Vietnam soon become a reality.
